Lenovo ThinkPad updates to come with mobile Core i5, i7 on January 7

January 4, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran


Close on the heels of giving us an update on using AMD chips in its X100 e and Edge series ThinkPads, Lenovo has revealed an update on a handful of new devices that would use Intel’s new mobile Core i5 and the four-core i7 processors. Set for debut on January 7, the prices are expected to start at $999.

The first among these new devices would be the W510 mobile workstation, which is seen as switching on to a new 15.6-inch LED-lit screen. It would also be presented as a device with multi-touch input and a color calibrator. Lenovo will also bring in two new memory slots enabling support up to 16GB of RAM.

Besides, the updated device would sport new keyboards and most probably provision for Quadro FX 880M for graphics. In terms of connectivity options, the devices could bring in the Qualcomm Gobi chipset for 3G over either EVDO or HSPA. Lenovo is expected to offer the W510 with a $1,599 tag

Another two ThinkPad models, christened T410 and T510, will come with LED-lit 14- and 15.4-inch displays respectively. Processors under the hood would be Core i5 and i7, with the choice of DDR4 memory. These two models might put to play the new Quadro NVS 3100M in the graphics department.

Lenovo would also roll out on January 7 a special variant of the smaller T410s. Almost similar in performance and specs to the T410, the thinner T410s would come for $1,399. With Intel ruling high on these ThinkPads, we expect more activity at retail stores as soon as they arrive on January 7.
